The Methodist Archbishop of Enugu Archdiocese, Most Rev. Christopher Ede, has observed that the decision of South East governors to dialogue with the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu will go a long way in dousing tension arising from agitation in the region.
Ede said this while commending South East governors for commencing dialogue with the IPOB leader.
Speaking with newsmen on Saturday in Enugu, the clergy man said, “First of all, I want to thank them (the South East governors) for swallowing their pride to meet with them, Kanu and his members.
“Because when we met at Nike Lake (Hotel) and some people were saying, isolate him; diminish him. That is not the right way to handle this matter.
“I thank God that they have now understood the meaning of dialogue.
“I thank God for the first meeting as well as other subsequent meetings and dialogues.
“I do hope the outcome of the meetings will douse the tension we have in the land”.
In a bid to find solution to the tension in the country arising from agitation for Biafra, South East Governors had recently met with the IPOB leader and some of his followers.
